The Australia Project is a "top level" project that encompasses all sub-projects with an Australian flavour.

It serves a central directory of all that is going on in the Sub-projects.

Welcome to the Australia Project

Mission

This project is the effort of a group of WikiTree users interested in profiles related to Australia.

Project members can take primary responsibility for relevant profiles or family groups and work on merging duplicates, cleaning up profiles, adding sources, and removing incorrect information.

Google Community

The Google Community WikiTree Australia Project is a location for project members and others to comment or raise issues regarding the project. Our G2G location is the best place to post queries regarding research.

Categories

If you create a Category that could be Australian please add [[Category:Australia]] in that category. That will make it a sub-category of Australia which can then be listed with all other Australian Categories by clicking onto the link in the box on the right, providing an easy reference of existing categories for our Project.

G2G Forums

Add the tag Australia to any discussions in G2G involving an Australia Project or sub-Project.

Research

One of the important facets of belonging to the Australia Project is research. Everyone should spend at least a little effort, from time to time, to help grow the Australian content on WikiTree. The Australia Project badge is not intended as just some extra bling for a managers profile, but it is a sign that they are interested in Australian content and want to do something about it.

Research required

If you can see somewhere that research is required please add it here, or on the sub-Project page, to let people know how they can help. If you want to help, but are not sure how to research, please post in the G2G forums using the tag "Australia", or in the Google+ group.
  • Australian Prime Ministers
Many of the Prime Ministers still have little family attached. This is an area where anyone could get involved.
  • Australian Convicts
There are many early convicts now on WikiTree, but very many still have no sources attached (Ancestry.com is not really a source). Anyone can look for some convicts and help add sources.
  • DB Error Project
If you have some spare time why not help us clean up any errors on our Australia Project profile, you can access the list here (DBE ErrorList WikiTree37)
